No, we can do that, too. Use the drop-down menu to the left of each track > Left Channel (or Right Channel).
Then select one of the tracks by clicking just above MUTE > File > Export Selected Audio.
Then do that to the other one.

That will let you create one sound file at a time, but I'm not sure what's going to happen when a player encounters this file. I think it's a safe bet no player is going to play both of them at once.

Yeah I'm thinking perhaps my idea maybe isn't going to work ?

This what I am trying to do.

I got

TRACK 1 - Guitar completely by itself,
TRACK 2 , It's that same guitar track but it's going my VOCALS Mixed into it.

What I'm trying to do is , I want

One speaker to be playing that SOLO GUITAR

and then the other speaker would be playing the Guitar with Vocals.

Seems like both my LAPTOP SPEAKERS and HEADPHONES are playing both thoses equally , so their has to be something wrong somewhere ?


I think you can do that by leaving the guitar track alone and shove the vocal all the way to the right with the L-R balance control. Export the song and it should be what you want. Guitar on the left and guitar/voice mix on the right.

You'll need to mess with the volumes to get it to sound right. You can do that with the -/+ control just above the voice balance control.

It will be in stereo and it will play like that in music players.

That's fine , I was reading in another topic about how it's possible to copy the EQ Settings from REALTEK ,

I love their sounds for LIVE , POP , and ROCK . How can I do this ? Those's sound great on my unedited tracks.

I always found it funny how a CAR STEREO's POP Setting sounds the best for HEAVY METAL instead of the Heavy Metal Setting :lol:

How can I make this a XML Preset file for everyone ?

If you can get your app to export Nyquist code, you can make Audacity execute that code.

You can also write your own.

It's not crazy-hard. This is the Nyquist code to make the LF_rolloff_for_speech.xml rumble filter for audiobooks.

I bet I can get you 98% of the way there if you can tell me the boost or dip values of those sliders. The frequencies are posted.

You knew this wasn't going to be easy, right?

There is no job that a good engineer can't make much worse. You can figure out the boost and dip values by generating a tone at each one of those frequencies along the bottom one at a time. Apply the filter and measure what happens to the tone volume. Write them all down. It can't take you much more than a week or so.

No, not directly. That's why I said you had to figure it out by applying it multiple times and measure what happens.

One of the tones is 500. So make a tone at 500Hz and about -10dB or so. Apply the filter. Measure what happened to the volume of the 500Hz tone. If it went up to -7dB, then that slider has a 3dB boost. Write that down.

UNDO

Go through that same dance for all the other sliders and tones.

You need both frequency and dB values to write a filter. You need other stuff, too, but we already know a lot of that from the original app.

Well actually

I have A STEREO that has 5 Bands on it.

100 330 1 3.3 10

I can do -10 up to +10 ,

No more or No Less.

If I burned a RAW Copy of my music or listened to some real Lo-Fi music on it ,

Messed around with the settings , if I find something I like , is it possible to just use the extact thing ?
